Activity 6: Aquifer injection feasibility

Activity 6 assessed the technical feasibility issues to provide a better understanding of the opportunities for, and associated risks of, injecting treated CSG water into the Central Condamine Alluvium.

Outcomes

Based on physical and hydro-chemical analyses of the alluvium, a total of 22 'target areas' were identified, which will are being investigated as potential sites for future injection trials. The activity found that matching the water quality of the injected water with that of the receiving aquifer is critical to the success of an injection project. This work provided the foundation for activity 8.2, which has identified and prioritised specific sites suitable for injection trials in the Central Condamine Alluvium.
